Post Game: Philadelphia Union vs. Seattle Sounders

This will be a quick post. A better one will come tomorrow when I'm not so tired, but I had to write something about tonight.


Freddy Adu opened the scoring with an opportunistic goal. But Brian Carroll really cemented the win with a breakaway goal in the 70th minute. Le Toux fed Carroll a perfect pass on a breakaway as the Seattle defense collapsed on him, leaving Carroll wide open. And Carroll easily slotted the ball home past Keller.

It was a perfect microcosm of the Union season. Solid defense, and opportunistic offense scoring clutch goals when they had to.

With this victory, the Union all but secure a playoff berth, and put themselves in great position to host a playoff game, and if all goes well, win the Eastern Conference if they can win out.

All in all, a great night for the Union. Congrats on the goals, and their first win on the West Coast.
